    Just a small poll. :)

    For Victorinox EDC, do you prefer the fat :censored: Huntsman or the scissors-lacking yet slim Camper?

    My Camper is 40 years old. It was in dozens of countries with me. It just works.
    We have been camping in Croatia and a branch was scraping on a friends tent. That’s when I flipped the Camper out and the saw came into play. My friend laughed, just for like half a minute. Then he realized I was halfway done already.
    In France we met some nice girls on the camping-site. We bought a bottle of wine, only to realize at the tent, we’d need to open it somehow. Cork screw to the rescue.
    The mango on the Philippines. The rope in India. The beer caps in Greece. The splinter in the US.
    So many memories, so many uses. There is no country I’d know where you can’t carry it. Maybe GB, they have some crazy going on. So there you have it.

    I love the Vic scissors, so Huntsman for me.

    The SAK scissors are one of my favorite SAK tools, so between those two, it would have to be the Huntsman.

    That being said, I live in a more urban area, so most of the time I forego the saw and carry a different SAK model, but always with scissors.

    I would go with Both! That way you can rotate them as needed.
    But, that's me. :confused:

    I've got both. And I'm sick of rotating them. :D
    I just can't decide (for years) which one to choose as my primary. It's either too big or no scissors. That's why I have turned to the vox populi. :D

    The Compact. :D

    For EDC, I've never needed the saw.

    Climber is my favorite model but I rarely find myself needing a saw. You said you have both. Do you miss the scissors when not carrying the Huntsman?

    I have none of those in EDC rotation, so...
    Third way for me, Farmer X actually.
    And Alox, forever.
